Financial TImes Expands Digital Staff, Readies New Functionality as Part of "Digital First"

As as part of the Financial Times  recently announced "digital first," the London-based, global paper is expanding its digital staff, introducing a new real-time feature on market-moving news called Fast FT and building social tools for its audiences, says Martin Dickson, Managing Editor for the U.S. in this interview with Beet.TV

Video, he says is essential for the site and the FT's approach is to leverage reporters' access to influencers to creating unique interviews. 

We spoke last week in Manhattan as the venerable newspaper celebrated its 125 year anniversary.
